Verona & Sirmione

by davide

Verona is another important Venetian city, famous all over the world. Among the main places of interest, we find the Arena, the important Roman amphitheatre located in the historic centre; a walk through the two most famous squares of the city is a must: Piazza Brà and Piazza delle Erbe. Not far from Piazza delle Erbe, there is Juliet’s House, with its famous balcony, from which it is possible to look out and identify with the Shakespearean protagonists. The Torre dei Lamberti, with its 84 meters high, offers a 360 degree view of the city.

Only 30-minute drive from Verona, just across the Venetian border, on the Lombard shore of Lake Garda, the town of Sirmione offers unforgettable landscapes. The access point to the historic centre is represented by the Scaligero Castle, which preserves a famous dock, open to the public since 2018. The walk to the centre of Sirmione is characterized by buildings, such as the Palazzo Maria Callas, the Abbey of San Salvatore, parks and beaches, like the Grifone Beach; at the end of the Sirmione Peninsula, you can reach the Grottoes of Catullus, the remains of one of the largest residential villas in northern Italy.
